However, after putting toil for years the real problem for the students as well as their parents arises when it comes to choosing the right engineering college.

Which one to go for? This one has the reputation, but this one has the faculty, oh! But that one has the better placement record, these kinds of questions create a conundrum and dealing with them seems like a hell of a task.

Hence, to tackle this issue and to aid the students and their parents, The Union Human Resource Department has come up with a list of 100 universities and institutes of Engineering, Management and Pharmacy in the country, which have been declared taking into consideration the five parameters of teaching, learning and resources, research, performance, graduation outcome, outreach and inclusivity and perception.
